The food is good. However, I really don't like the service providing there, especially the attitude of the waitress. My credit card was not accepted in the resturant and can be accepted before and after this meal, it only happened in this resturant when I was in Sweden. the resturant cannot accept other currencies or any other methods while my...

A few guidelines when visiting this restaurant: No bookings. Do not approach a table or seat by the bar until it has been cleared and set. Do not push yourself into the restaurant when other people are already waiting to get seated, most likely you will be blocking the staffs' way and be much too close to other guests trying... More

like home cooking. We had the "Köttbüllar" with mashed potatoes and Salad. The small Restaurant is like a bar, nice atmosphere, but the whole lunch is no longer than one hour.

This place will provide you with good introduction to Swedish food. The service was exceptional. I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the restaurant too. It has an endearing old school vibe to it.

Always nice to get a place at the bar desk in this place. It is almost always full, so you better be prepared to queue up. Once inside you can choose between several Swedish classics. This time we both had a wonderful plate of fish & chips, large pieces of flakey cod with a crispy exterior not overwhelmed by that... More

Perfect start to my stay in Stockholm. The meatballs were great, loved the flavor and texture (thanks to the crunch of the pickled gherkin). Wine was paired well and the ambience is relaxed.

Typical swedish dishes such as meatballs and salmon in a nice surrounding. International and a lot of tourists and easy to talk to your neighbors when sitting at the bar. Pretty intimate. Not as expensive and "stiff" as the main restaurant and not as small portions and innovative but you ll for sure be full, happy and satisfied when you... More

I had a vegetarian main course, which was a delicious pumpkin ravioli with sage and rosemary... So good! And the desert was also one of the tastiest I've had- a fried almond sponge cake with vanilla ice cream and fresh fruit. I also liked the small size- it was very cozy! The only drawback was the price!!

We came here for dinner on a Wednesday night. The entryway is very tight and at first we felt sort of ignored by the staff--there was no one waiting at the entrance to welcome people or take down names. We waited for about 10 minutes with no one speaking to us (although we could see all the tables were full)... More

We had a late lunch a this authentic Swedish restaurant. While it is small, with only about 30 seats, the ambiance and atmosphere is relaxed and upbeat at the same time. The food, classic Swedish dishes like meatballs and fish cakes, was amazing, and the service excellent. We would definitely eat here again!
